Share A Smile (Day #1)


Welcome to Share A Smile project!  I'm so glad you are here!!

The Share A Smile Project is a collaborative project to raise funds for the Operation Smile.

8 bloggers have collaborated together to put together a blog style Smile-A-Thon! What is a Smile-A-Thon? I'm glad you asked :)  Together we are photography smileys we see everywhere around us and uploading them to the Spontaneous Smiley Website.  Spontaneous Smiley donates $1 to Operation Smile for every photo uploaded!  
Each life saving surgery only costs $240 and our goal is to raise enough money for FIVE surgeries.  We hope you will join all of us in our efforts to raise $1200 by by the end of the month for Operation Smile!
How can you help?
1.  Look for spontaneous smileys, photograph them and upload the photos to the Spontaneous Smiley website.  Make sure to include in the "who are you" section the words "Elizabeth Sent Me"  
Some samples of Spontaneous Smileys:

2.  Sponsor one of our bloggers.  Similar to a walk-a-thon we are collecting pledges of any amount per photo we collect and upload.  You can contact me or comment below with a pledge amount if you are interested in participating in this way.  For example you pledge to donate 50 cents per photo I collect and I collect 20 photos you would donate $10 to Operation Smile :)  

3.  Print off Sponsor sheets and collect your own pledges.  Or why not try this with a local kids group (school project, Art class, kids club, scouts badge, etc.)  You will find all the information you need to collect your own pledges here.

4.  Donate directly to Operation Smile here.

I would love it if you are a blogger and want to participate along with us!  Please feel free to post the button on your blog and join us for the next 14 days of Sharing Spontaneous Smileys!
